    Just saw that on the tube. Hope for a fast and full recovery for the deps.

    Who were those people that said Wal-Mart was boring? JK

    Hope the Deputies are not seriously wounded. And I hope they catch the one who was fleeing.

    Strike another one up for Wal-Mart. A regular combat zone in a lot of their parking lots.

    Someone should do a study to see how Wal-Mart ranks against other name brand stores for parking lot crime and gunfire.

    Walmart actually has a website that keeps statistics of crimes committed on their property. I was surprised at the number of crimes that take place on their properties most are property crimes but their are some other more serious crimes.

    It stands to reason that the single largest retailer with the most locations(some as large as local malls) would have a higher crime rate than any other retailer. While I don't like most of Walmart's business practices, at least they don't deny us our right to defend ourselves.

    I don't dispute that. Especially your second point. +1 on pointing that out.

    I'm just saying it would be curious to see stats on a comparison basis.

    And no known reason why the guy started shooting..... hummm. Warrant ? Paranoia ?

    Bad that 2 bystanders got killed, and wonder from who's guns ? I remember one here where they said the BG shot 4 people in the process, and then discovered later... it was all LEO bullets, none from the BG hit any of them. Hope the Deputies pull of it all OK.

    I used to live out there and my son just moved to Bremerton.......Mrs. GSB is flying out there this week to help take my DIL and the G-kids.............

    Sounds like a domestic gone really, really bad. Glad the officers are gonna be OK but not so good for the two shoppers shot.
    What's going on??? Things are getting REALLY crazy out there. Ya'll watch you 6's and stay safe!
